Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Meaning "a place where one can enjoy the traditions of times past and rest one's soul," Rakkojae Seoul is a Korean traditional culture space with a history of 130 years. It was renovated by Human National Treasure-Master Carpenter Young Jin Chung in 2003 and has since received international acclaim. Here, the harmony created between traditional Korean architecture and nature has created on opportunity for the true beauty of Hanok to shine. Upon passing the graceful main gate, one can see neat cozy Hanok. The bamboo and pine trees scattered in the garden add to its natural beauty and the rubber shoes placed on each terrace stone bring back the scent of old memories. Standing in a square formation around the yard, the elegance of ancient noblemen can be felt in each crevice of Rakkojae. The pavilion, lotus pond and patio that past scholars enjoyed were carefully revived to draw out the beautiful elegance of traditional Korean architecture. The Patio, in particular, adds to the beauty of the Hanok's refreshing empty spaces. When sitting on the patio like scholars of the past, time itself seems to slow down and the smallest sounds coupled with the cool breeze become special. In slowly looking up, one can only see the blue sky and white clouds-while the complications of life in today's modern society seem to become insignificant. As the place to enjoy the true elegance of Korean traditional culture, Rakkojae also offers the opportunity to experience the traditional beauty of Korea. One can encounter such beauty through savoring a traditional Korean course meal, experiencing a tea ceremony, relaxing in the yellow-mud sauna, trying on a Hanbok, or making your own Kimchi. Reminiscent of an aristocratic house of the Chosun Dynasty, Rakkojae's accommodations are as tidy and as comfortable as those found at top class hotels. Going above and beyond, we offer our guests a healthy voyage by sleeping on a natural jade ondol floor or relaxing in a yellow-mud sauna that is heated with firewood. Create unforgettable memories by experiencing Korea's beauty through the simplest of scenes, such as the faint moonlight sinking into your room through a door left ajar. We are confident that a night at Rakkojae will deliver special inspiration. ... more   less
